This is so interesting! Highlights for me were the way physicians were not intellectually submissive to the Galenic tradition, the discussion about genres of medical literature, and the role of midwives as the front line practitioners working with children.

Look at this lovely illuminated manuscript of Aristotle's Ethics in the National Library of Spain. Check out the classroom scene at the bottom of the page.

I have now planned a session on Ethics I-III and V-VII, and then two sessions on Politics (II-V and VI-VIII). But perhaps I should devote an extra session on Ethics rather than Politics

When teaching Aristotle, would you spend more time on the Nichomachean Ethics or the Politics?

use of a cistern in contemporary Alicante resembling the 'aljibe' in Andalusia. The word aljibe derives from the Arabic al-ǧubb, "cistern"
